        When sending an SMS campaign to a large number of shoppers across the world, some of the messages may not get sent. With Yotpo SMS you can easily keep track and manage those texts in the Pending Messages section.

        The following article will walk you through why messages might be pending and how to manage them.

        How to manage pending messages

        Pending messages are texts that haven’t been sent for one of the following reasons: 

        •  The recipient is currently in a Do not Disturb timespan
        • You do not have enough credit to send the message
        • The cost of the message exceeds the set max price per message (found in the Settings under Country Limitations).

        To access them, go to SMS Campaigns and navigate to the Pending Messages section. 


        A list of all pending messages will appear. You can filter them by All, Do not Disturb, Max SMS Price, or you can search by phone number to look for a specific recipient.

        You’ll also see the total price for all pending messages, a button that allows you to send all messages anyway, and one to cancel all.
